food is delicious, the interior is nice and its hard to believe your in the middle of warstones! The only downsides were the terrible disorganised service and the fact we paid £9 for 10 popadoms!
Knowing I eat somehere different each week, Jen my friend at work insisted I must try, and so we did, last Saturday night.
It is in a converted pub and we were surprised to be welcomed by someone obviously not from the Asian sub-continent. First impressions are very good and no surprises that it is has been done out in the now obligatory "contemporary" style. I am not a fan of purple & laminate but each to their own and I suppose there was a clue in the name. It is a big room, they've spent a lot of money on the refurb and it has been well done. My concern is that a big room needs to be relatively full to have an atmosphere but then it can be noisy as the sound reverberates around the hard surfaces. Mid week perhaps the opposite and it could be a little too quiet and lifeless?
Typically the staff are very young & therefore inexperienced but all appeared smart, pleasant and eager to please. Our order was taken by a lady who seemed to be in charge.
Popadoms were fine, served with three dips, one of which, a sort of bland apple sauce was new to me. The starters arrived before we had finished our popadoms. Fresh or micro? The onion bhaji was fine but the seekh kebabs, of which there were three, were a fraction too hot and lacked depth of flavour plus they didn't come with fried onions. The side salad was better than average, nicely presented incl olives.
My main course was a bit disappointing, it was not as spicy as I was hoping for based on the waitress's suggestion. Although it was hot enough it was in a lighter, slightly creamy sauce. It was also plain cicken in lieu of the chicken tikka ordered. The wife's CT sag however was very tasty but a little salty, I pinched half of it and we both got up in the night to look for a glass of water - I suggest those with high blood pressure beware.
Our side orders consisted of very nice fried pillau rice, a "damp" garlic & coriander nan and a large plate of pale cash & carry fries.
For deserts there were a few choices from a hand written note, they haven't got their desert menu together yet. For a change we had a floater coffee but that too was a little weak. The bill duly arrived and I thougt it only fair to advise of the slight problem with the main course. She was apologetic and whilst she accepted my comments on the main course she seem to suggest that I may not know the difference between plain and tikka chicken - trust me, I do.
Overall the evening for me was just adequate and a little pricey. I'm sure if we had gone straight for the main course and I had chosen a different dish it would well have been 4 Stars but we didn't hence the 3 Stars.
